How to Choose the Right NSA CSfC Trusted Integrator
The Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) program was created by the NSA to authorize U.S. government agencies and their customers the ability to use commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) IT and technology solutions that are compliant with the NSA’s security guidelines for transmitting classified data.
However, when it comes to the CSFC program itself, many find it hard to install, hard to do, and hard to deploy.
That is where a CSfC Trusted Integrator can help. Trusted Integrators specializes in architecting together CSfC components in accordance with the CSfC Capability Packages to ensure secure and proper solution functionality.
With over 50+ NSA-approved Trusted Integrators, how can you make sure you choose the right one? We sat down with Will Robinson, Army Chief Strategist at Dell Technologies and Mike Maice, CTO at Archon to discuss the topic.
During the roundtable, we cover questions such as:
- What is a Trusted Integrator?
- What should you be looking for in a Trusted Integrator?
- Is a Trusted Integrator really needed?
- How important is it to choose the right Trusted Integrator?
- What questions should you ask NSA CSfC Trusted Integrators?
- What kind of qualifications should an NSA CSfC Trusted Integrator have?
